Friends, because we are in the largest archipelago in the world, of course there will be no shortage of tourist destinations, right? Come to think of it, perhaps our entire lifetime wouldn’t really be enough to spend the time setting foot in each of its locations.
Indonesia’s location is very strategic, both for trade and tourism. Just try it, this region is located between two major continents, Asia and Australia which are also a sample of two major cultures, East and West.
We are also surrounded by a vast ocean, an ocean that is so rich in marine products. It is not enough to stop there, in the middle of Indonesia the Equator is crossed as a sign that our country is in the tropics.
Lack of friends? Not to mention the various uniqueness of our region and fertile soil. There are so many tourist destinations, including those that will be discussed today.
Friend, have you ever come to Kampung Laut? It is the name of a sub-district in the Cilacap Regency area, Central Java Province. It is located in the Segara Anakan lagoon, surrounded by lush mangrove trees.
Kampung Laut District Government Center is in Klaces Village, precisely at the western end of Nusakambangan Island, south of the coast of Java. Talking about the location of tourist destinations, do you know how to get to Kampung Laut?
Colleagues can choose two ways of access routes, namely sea or land. Come to Cilacap and then cross over to Nusakambangan Island via the Batre or Tanjung Intan crossing. After that, use a motorbike to reach the destination.
Colleagues can also use a compreng boat with a capacity of about 20 people and a travel time of approximately 1.5 to 2 hours. This Compreng boat usually departs from Seleko Port, Cilacap.
Friends, this Kampung Laut sub-district apparently consists of various small island clusters. This cluster is differentiated into several villages including Ujug Alang, Kleces, Ujung Gagak and Panikel. This region is inhabited by about 15 thousand inhabitants in total.
Most of the people in Kampung Laut make a living as casual laborers, fishermen or farmers. In addition, they usually drive using compreng boats as the main transportation for the community.
This district has long been one of the tourist destinations for many people, both domestic and foreign. If colleagues want to vacation in this place, please just come and do a tour or live in.
Tourists usually enjoy the lush mangrove forest (mangrove) which is still very natural in this place. We can you know to take some pictures or videos. What can we do in Kampung Laut?
1. Culinary Tasting. As an area around the coast, of course seafood is a mainstay food that cannot be missed. One of the recommended locations is Ujung Alang Village.
Ujung Alang Village does have a unique history of mystery or origin myths. In this place, we will be able to taste a variety of seafood such as totok clams, mullet fish, shrimp, crab, and salted fish.
2. Exploring Caves. Friends, we can also come to the cave location around here. There are many options that we can choose from, including Gua Maria, Batu Lawang, Masigit Sela, and others.
Several sources stated that two Indonesian Presidents, Ir. Soekarno and Suharto, had also stopped at Masigit Sela Cave. While visiting the cave, you can also enjoy the freshness of young coconut at a fantastic price, only IDR 1,000 per fruit.
3. Eye vitamins. The natural beauty of Kampung Laut is undeniable, friends. We will be able to enjoy various types of plants and geographical forms from Indonesia. Don’t forget to bring our photos and video equipment.
Conditions in Kampung Laut
In this place there is one main Puskesmas with two ambulance ships. The health workers here consist of general practitioners, midwives and nurses. Kampung Laut residents usually use the Puskesmas as their main health service facility.
Understandably, the distance between Kampung Laut and the administrative center of Cilacap Regency is quite far so that the function of this Puskesmas is vital for the lives of the population. People in the Segara Anakan lagoon usually use clean water from a variety of sources.
Even though it is an area near a sea water source, apparently there is not much clean water that can be used for daily needs. They usually use rainwater and springs from Nusakambangan, namely Jongor Asu.
In this place there are also educational facilities such as SMA N 1 Kampung Laut (not a tornado). Even though there have been problems regarding the issue of Christianization, the people here live in harmony and safety.
Colleagues can also see the history of the formation of this region, (Ujung Gagak, Karanganyar, Muara Dua, etc.) on the Wiki.
